View Full Version : Problem indexing https site
03-18-2005, 02:19 PM
We are using Zoom Search Engine 3.1. All was well until recently.
We changed our site to https. The site worked fine. But the search engine couldnt index the site. After moving to https we did the following for search to work.
We have changed the spidering URL to https://www.mysite.com/home.asp.
We checked if .asp in the extensions list
So please help us on fixing the problem.

Indexing https pages should be no problem. I did a quick test on our secure order page and it worked as expected, see the trace below,

Can you post up your trace so that we can see any error messages.
Also can you download V4 of Zoom to see if there is a difference in behaviour between V3.1 and V4.
I also assume that you have access to your spider start page from Internet Explorer and you have checked that it is not a firewall problem?

Thanks, We resolved the problem. We were using version 3.1 build 1003. We just downloaded update build 1022. That fixed the problem.
Just to let you know, the software is awesome. Feature rich and reliable.
A different question, I was looking at setting up categories. Now I can setup categories according to URL path. Is there a way to categorise by meta data.

In the current version of the software, V4.0, categories can only be defined by file location (matching part of the URL in spider mode, or the file name in offline mode).
There is no option for creating categories from the page meta data.
